What's a Tablet PC?

Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with Wi-Fi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

For the price, this an awesome deal. I've had my for a month now it is a great internet tablet. This is not an ipad, but an excellent alternative for 1/3 the cost. If your considering buying an ipad as gift for a young child 13 or under this is a great alternative. Pros: - the latest Android OS 4.0 - great internet tablet - great size (same as ipad) - great dispaly - able to download AMAZON app / kindle. netflic etc - USB connection - HDMI output - PRICE cannot beat the price for Adroid 4.0 10" tablet Con: - No ANDROID APP market (Now called Google Play) although you can download and install via a semi-hack way - processor speed is responsive but not as fast as ipad, but good enough - back plastic feel flimsy and cheap Over all great Value

Pros: This Tablet comes with Android 4.0, clear crisp screen, Netflix looks great on it, and internet works fine. Apps You Can Get: Kindle, Nook, Netflix, Twitter, games, NBC Nightly News ( The only news app they have), Pandora, Skype, and many unknown/ unpopular apps. Cons: No Google play. Comes with Jetjar and it has very few good apps. You can download the amazon app store, which is way better than Jetjar, but no app store can top Google play. Amazon app store still don't have all the apps you might want. You can also download the SlideMe Market, but once again, you won't find a lot of cool apps. Tablet comes with 2 cameras (Web and back cam). They both seem to work fine, but I had some problems using Skype to video chat (Note that Skype is the only app you'll be able to get for video chatting) you can see the person you call, but they can't see you on their end. So what good is the web cam then? Guess it's just there to take pics, but I don't know if the reason is because the tablet I have has some type of defect. The tablet comes with wack apps. The only social networking app you can download is twitter from the Jetjar app store. Conclusion: It all depends on what you want to do. It might be good for some people who want to use it for eReading (Kindle, Bible, Kolo, & Nook app), Netflix, games, etc.

  • A. Yes if you install the AMAZON app store app which is free, from there you can download the Netflix app. Let me tell you the video quality is great. HD netflix streams are great. It took me all of 5 minutes to get both apps installed and watching movies via netflix!
